I am a volunteer with UpRising Yoga, a 501.c3 non-profit (URY) uprisingyoga.org We bring yoga to teens in the juvenile justice system. Our focus is on those teens that have been sexually trafficked and foster youth. We know that yoga heals all traumas. We have been teaching in Central Juvenile Hall every Tuesday-no matter the weather or if it’s a holiday-for the last three years. We also offer free yoga classes to at-risk communities and Trauma Informed Trainings that empower communities. Please Help Us Raise Awareness & Funds to keep classes going, thank you.
On November 12 URY is hosting a fundraiser. The funds will allow us to continue our program and expand more yoga classes. Currently we had to cancel classes due to lack of funds. We are looking for ticket sales & corporate sponsorship.
